Court Location in Augusta, Maine

If your arrest for operating under the influence (OUI) occurred in Kennebec County, then your case will be handled in the Unified Criminal Docket, located at the Kennebec County Courthouse, in Augusta, Maine. The court is housed in a brand new, modern-looking building at 1 Court Street, in Augusta, Maine, opening in the beginning of 2015. The new building can be difficult to find, as it’s down a hill behind the old superior courthouse.

However, all criminal district and superior court cases are heard at this new courthouse. Driving directions can be found using Google Maps, but are also available on the court’s website. It is also possible that depending on where in Kennebec County you were arrested, your arraignment could take place at the Waterville District Court. Double check your bail bond or summons to be sure.


There is usually enough parking at the courthouse, but if it’s an especially busy day, you might strike out and have to look for a spot on one of the many side streets nearby. The streets near the courthouse are generally arranged in a grid-like pattern, with Court Street running directly to the courthouse, so as long as you know where Court Street is, you shouldn’t get lost. Give yourself extra time to make sure you find a spot.


Because The Kennebec County Courthouse is such a new building, the courtrooms don’t have delegated purposes just yet. However, most cases are heard in one of the courtrooms on the first floor.

If you lose your way, be sure to ask court security where you should go, and they’ll help guide you – because the building is still so new, they’re used to having to point people in the right direction.
